ERH 206WX - American Literary Traditions

Instructor: MAJ Henry A. Wise, III
Location: Scott Shipp Hall 367
Date/Time: Monday-Friday 12:30-2:30 p.m.
Credit Hours: 3

American authors are as varied as there are versions of American identity. In this course, we will by no means be able to explore every writer of significance in American literature. However, we will read important works and learn about their placement in the evolution of writing in the New World. At the end of this course, you will be knowledgeable of the significant literary movements and their leaders and will have the resources to explore these movements further. Ultimately, I hope you will have an appreciation for the rich, diverse literary traditions unique to the United States of America. Cadets cannot take this course if they have already taken EN 209. The delivery platform used in this course to support students placed in isolation/quarantine during VMI Summer Session will be Canvas. Writing Intensive/Civilizations and Cultures Course. Note: Textbook: The Norton Anthology of American Literature (Shorter 9th Edition) (2 volumes): ISBN: 978-0-393-26451-7. Prerequisite(s): ERH 102 with a minimum grade of C
